Welcome Back, Bobcats!

Welcome back Palm Lake Bobcats and a great big welcome to our new PLE families!

My name is Meredith Fisher, and I am your new PTA President for the 2021-2022 school year. Last school year was like no other, and I know you are as excited as I am to start a brand new school year, and a new year of PTA.
Our PTA executive board officers and I have been busy planning for the year and coming up with new innovative ways to support our staff, students, and the PLE community. But we cannot do this alone! I encourage each and every one of you to become a part of our Palm Lake Elementary PTA.

As a member of the PTA, you are a voice for our students and part of the largest child advocacy program in the world. The PTA also contributes to school activities and events through volunteer hours and by providing financial support based on the money we raise through PTA Fundraisers, but there are many more advantages:

• By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and
hobbies to good use, for a good cause.
• By getting involved, you’ll be part of the solution, helping to make positive change.
• PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers.
• The PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, attend the PTA Association meetings throughout the year to make suggestions, and provide
your input.

The biggest area of opportunity to help will be with our annual fundraiser, which will kick off October 1st.
Every dollar helps, and 100% of what is raised stays here at the school!

Our first three PTA events happen fairly quickly. Please join us on Tuesday August 10th for our annual Boo Hoo! Yahoo! Breakfast from 8:45 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. in the school cafeteria after dropping your child off for their first day of school. On Friday September 10th we will host Donuts with Dear Ones for families whose student’s last name begins with A-M and on Friday September 17th for families whose student’s last name begins with N-Z. Both of which will be held in the school cafeteria from 8:30am – 8:50am. I hope you can attend!

I hope you will join me in becoming a member of our Palm Lake Parent Teacher Association. Membership sign-ups will be available in the cafeteria during Meet the Teacher on Thursday August 5th from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Alternatively, complete the form in the Palm Lake Elementary folder that your student receives at Meet the Teacher. Simply fill out the form, attach your method of payment (cash or check made out to Palm Lake PTA), and return to school with your child. You will receive a receipt via email.

Palm Lake Elementary is truly a special place, we have an amazing community of students, parents, teachers, and staff. Contributing to the PTA only enhances and strengthens this relationship. Thank you for helping make every student’s potential a reality.
I look forward to meeting you at our first PTA meeting on Monday September 13th at 9:00 a.m. in the school cafeteria.

Warm Regards,

Meredith Fisher
Palm Lake PTA President •
